Registered Staff Hours
This facility's grades are horrible across the board. We especially wanted to point out its inspection grade where we gave it an F. This isn't a good sign for its inspection reports. For facilities with poor inspection ratings, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility was hit with 7 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an F. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. With its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last area, this nursing home really did not perform very well in this category either. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 87.37541 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit lower than the national average. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
